Sparta Rotterdam vs Ajax Match Preview
Ajax travel to Rotterdam for their Matchday 5 clash on Sunday afternoon, just days after beating APOEL (2-0) in Champions League Play-offs and making their way to the Group Stage over the Cyprus rivals after a goalless draw in the first leg. They’ve kept hold of a nine-match unbeaten streak despite more unpredictable displays on the road, which should have them just as motivated now.
De Godenzonen have thus bagged four wins and a draw in their last five outings but regularly conceding goals on the road could be more worrying, as the clean sheet at APEOL marked the first in five trips since late June. They have still been scoring numbers of goals and Erik Ten Hag should have no troubles keeping their team spirits high.
Sparta Rotterdam promise a strong challenge, though, and come into the match on the back of a rock-solid streak of their own – where they bagged two wins and two draws in four Eredivisie outings this term and sit a point clear of the reigning Dutch champions early in the new campaign.
De Kasteelheren kicked off the season with a thriller 2-2 draw at Feyenoord, built on it with six points in clashes against VVV (4-1) and ADO Den Haag (1-2), and ultimately saw a 2-2 draw at PEC Zwolle last week with a late equalizer from Lars Veldwijk. He has netted three in the four outings so far and will surely lead an in-form attacking line here as well.
We will still back Ajax to outgun them and secure the points on the day, as we go for an Away win and a Yes on Both teams to score at 6/5 with Coral in hope we’ll have a thriller on our hands but the visitors can show their class.
With that in mind, we should see goals but we still feel that going for four or fewer at Sparta-Stadion Het Kasteel looks like a rock-solid approach to the fixture – with Under 4.5 Goals FT coming at 1/2 with bet365 and catching the eye of many big hitters already.
